My husband and I took two tours (a night walk and a daytime walk) in Tortuguero, where Johnny joined the local guide in helping to spot animals, birds, lizards, etc. Even though he is based in Monteverde, a cloud forest, Johnny has such an expansive...More

If you want a guide who is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, has the sight of an eagle and is a thoroughly nice person, Johnny is your man. We saw so much we would never have spotted without him including quetzals. And so reasonably priced. Thanks Johnny.

John's enthusiasm for nature knows no bounds. He is chatty and full of knowledge and his love for his job and home town is contagious. He saw birds we couldn't even hear which was extraordinary. He adapted our day into two separate spells so that...More
